It’s here! The spectacular Disney Magic cruise ship has arrived in Liverpool.
The visit is the luxury liner’s maiden voyage to the city – and it has brought some of Disney’s best known names with it.
The stunning vessel entered the Mersey this morning carrying 2,700 guests and an incredible 950 cast and crew members.
Packed with Disney characters – from princesses to super heroes – the cruise ship showcases the famous film-maker’s magical history.
Guests on board can enjoy Disney inspired dining, theatre, leisure and entertainment designed for children of all ages (and their big kid parents!).
Weighing 84,000 tonnes it boasts 10 different restaurants, five pools and two nightclubs.
You can even meet Disney royalty on board- from introducing yourself to Cinderella and Sleeping Beauty to playing in a giant recreation of Toy Story Andy’s bedroom.
Today’s visit to Liverpool is one of only a handful of UK stops being made by the 12 night transatlantic cruise, which started in Florida.
And while Merseyside’s biggest Disney fans may not be able to taste the experience today fear not – it returns next month.
And on when it does, on June 12, a host of events will celebrate its arrival.
There will be an outdoor cinema that will show Frozen, Finding Nemo, Toy Story and Mary Poppins in full.
A bandstand in front of the Cunard Building will play host to live music, with the Royal Marines Bands playing a Disney medley and performances from opera singer Danielle Thomas and Liverpool’s Ukulele Orchestra.
Youngsters will also be battling it out to be named Liverpool’s Young Town Crier.
A ‘magic garden’ event will run at Pier Head, themed with potting sheds, toadstools, giant flowers and fairy houses.
And, at around 10.15pm, a firework display will signal the moment the vessel leaves for Dublin.
